    “The cottage was in a beautiful ...”

    The cottage was in a beautiful location and the view from the full length window in the sitting room was stunning.We could see all the way down to the local reservoir from that room.

As for the quality of the cottage and fittings we could not fault it and we found Mr and Mrs Kerry very welcoming and most helpful,even giving us a call after we got home to check that we had arrived safely. One of the best cottages that we have stayed at!
